Our Verdict: The RTX 2080 is faster by 37% for 1440p gaming. However, RTX 2060 is still capable of producing more than 60 frames per second. For 1080p games, upgrading from RTX 2060 to RTX 2080 is not worth it if targeting 60 frames per second. In addition, taking into account the huge price difference between the two, the RTX 2060 is a winner. The price/performance ratio is much better for RTX 2060 .

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 / i7-8700K

It is clear that the RTX 2060 is a significantly more capable high-end card that can play AAA titles at 1080p/1440p with 50-60 frames per second. In terms of memory, the RTX 2060 's 6144 MB RAM is more than enough for modern games and should not cause any bottlenecks. In short the performance is exceptional, there's no question that this is one of the most powerful single GPU out there in 2019 .

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 / i7-8700K

It is worth noting that the RTX 2080 is a very power hungry card and requires a decent power supply unit. In terms of memory, the RTX 2080 's 8192 MB RAM is more than enough for modern games and should not cause any bottlenecks. Deciding whether to invest so much money in a high-end GPU like RTX 2080 requires careful thought. 4K gaming is joyous on this RTX 2080 , and with a little tweaking to your AA settings, it'd be hard to imagine a title not capable of 60 fps on average.
